Justin Woodall
Woodall Realty Group brokered by eXp Realty, LLC
About Justin

While I grew up in South Georgia, I’ve lived my adult life in the Athens area. I am a graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Economics. After graduation, I worked in the grass seed industry helping to oversee and manage the manufacturing, packaging, shipping, and sales of grass seed and vegetable seed. In 2004, I left the seed industry to strike out on my own with a career in real estate and never looked back! I regularly attend conferences and masterminds with other top performing agents from other parts of the nation to share ideas and learn new techniques to serve our clients better. I owe most of my success to having high quality mentors, awesome team members, my God-given talents, and just pure hard work. Fortunately, I’ve been able to assemble the top performing real estate team in the Athens area focused solely on residential real estate and land.

Christie Wilkins
Keller Williams Realty Atl Part
About Christie

It was clear early in Christie’s career, that despite her working as hard and constantly as possible, she was just not able to be in multiple places at once. She realized that her most important asset, her clients, could suffer if she tried to do everything by herself. Today, Christie has a team of professionals in place to ensure that her buyers and sellers get the benefit of a coordinated group who has one goal, and one goal only: to listen carefully to her clients, care about the experience they receive and pull all of that together by negotiating at the highest level for them. Through team work and dedication, Christie and her team are ready to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve.
